We are in the month of sequences. we very much enjoyed a sequence of winning naps just before Aintree, and again from last weekend onwards. Now though we have hit a real sequence of rogues’ gallery. The ultimate rogue Singlefarmpayment trolled us with a narrow defeat on Wednesday. Another blog troll Oscar Rose followed that with a 3rd yesterday.
This builds to the Verdana Blue- Bigmartre- Beware the Bear cluster-troll that awaits us on Saturday.
So who can bridge that gap by filling in on Friday? Good afternoon Theinval.
Nicky Henderson’s chaser was a good 3rd in the 2017 Grand Annual at Cheltenham, followed that with a runner up effort at Aintree (when tipped here) then was second in this race (again tipped here).
A quiet early season had us convinced he was being aimed at Cheltenham and we stood to land some mighty bets. It all went wrong that day but he still ran a great race to finish 4th. He repeated his trip to Aintree and again ran second and now returns here finally looking for that win.
We think he’ll get it. He’s 7lbs lower than last year. He ran into a corker ( as he so often does) when beaten at Aintree but was 18l ahead of the rest of a strong field and sneaks in off the same mark here making him 3lb well in.
Henderson’s horses remain in flying form and he will be keen to see this fella finally get his head in front. Today should be the day.
Recommendation: Theinval, (1545 Ayr), 1pt win, 11/4 generally available
